Here it is: my self-portrait. better late than never; and better unfinished than not at all---that's my motto!
This is only my second self-portrait ever. I lived with a photographer for a number of years and had gotten used to being photographed; that took a while, but then when we went our separate ways, it took me a while to get used to not being photographed. Go figure!
So this challenge was truly a challenge for me (and yes, that is the point, eh? LOL). And all I could do was this: I call it "The Eyelashes I Think I Have." I'm hoping to add much more thread work on the face and into the border. There should be hair and maybe part of an eyebrow. If I manage to do more, I'll post the result. Meanwhile, enjoy my green stare :)
